Dairy farmers across Northern Ireland searching for high volumes of milk may have found the solution with a bull named after the easiest of party tricks.
The bull in question is of course EDG CT Coin Flip 25005. Sired by Cashcoin who is from the renowned Barbie family, Coin Flip is a bull who comes with a perfect copybook for commercial traits of high value to UK dairy farmers.
This includes high components (0.09% Fat and 0.07% Protein), low SCC (-21) and high type (2.43), without extremes, which is also reflected in his positive condition score (0.38).
However, Coin Flip offers so much more. His dam is a VG-85 Watson daughter from the Rudy Missy cow family, a bloodline renowned for its production of high volumes of quality milk with his 2nd dam, Pine-Tree Missy Miranda VG86, achieving over 14,000kgs at 4.9% fat and 3.9% protein in her second lactation.
Coin Flip follows in his family’s footsteps when it comes to milk production offering a fantastic 521kgs. He combines this with good fertility (0.6), calving ease (1.4) and the benefit and reliability of his proven sire stack made for profitable everyday milkers.
“Coin Flip has a background filled with money-making milk production and is precisely the type of bull that will appeal to dairy farmers in Northern Ireland who are focussed on the profitability of their herds,” says Ashley Fleming, Cogent’s Northern Ireland Regional Sales Manager.
“He is a bull that truly personifies the genomic generation and we expect his daughters to deliver on their promises, offering great management traits with a workable stature that will fit almost any production system.
“His pedigree is a further attraction and the result is a bull that will not only make waves across the globe but provide high type, production and longevity to his progeny. Coin Flip is destined to become a sire of sons and it’s exciting to be able to bring genetics of this calibre to herds throughout Northern Ireland.”
